Sex trafficking film Wednesday

The film Sex+Money will be shown this coming Wednesday, Oct. 24, at 6:30 p.m. at the Sunnyside Community Center.

Sex+Money is a feature-length documentary about domestic minor sex trafficking and the modern-day abolitionist movement fighting to stop it.

The film follows a group of photojournalists as they travel in an RV on a journey across the United States, seeking to understand how the sexual exploitation of children has become the nation's fastest growing form of organized crime and what can be done to stop it.

Since 2009 the crew behind the film has travelled around the country and conducted more than 75 interviews on sex trafficking with federal agents, victims, politicians, activists, psychologists and porn stars, among others.

The film showing is free of charge to the public and is provided through a partnership involving Sunnyside's Promise, the Yakima Valley Anti-Human Trafficking Network and Washington Engage.

The film is not yet rated, organizers say, and recommend that children under the age of 13 should not see it without a parent.
